Yes, we can , we can change .
Pistoia just voted for a new mayor but this is not the of only news , the real news is the change that this is means . Pistoia has always been a so called “red city” for about 70 years but since 2017 June 25th it changed colour : the right party took the power.
The new young Mayor is a young married man with two little children , working in his family run bakery located in Pistoia , who fascinated most of Pistoia’s people with his polite manners and his sincere dedication to politics since he was a boy . He has been able to catch the hearts of Pistoia’s people sharing his ideals with his potential electors not only during his public speeches & meetings but most of all listening to people in the streets, giving voice to those who have never had it before.
Many young people from Pistoia started to follow him & trying to support him in any way to promote his meetings and spread his slogans on FB and on all the socials . I can say that in all my life it has been the first time I have seen such a great interest for mayor’s elections in Pistoia.
Sincerely I don’t know what we could expect from this new crew just settled down in our City Hall since now on , but one thing I think I can say we should understand from this new choice : people from Pistoia – maybe from everywhere – need to be listened , need to feel to be part of a project , being involved in ruling the city with honesty , clearness and by someone who speaks their own language .
Good luck to our new mayor , Alessandro Tomasi & his new team of people from Pistoia , choosen by Pistoia’s people for Pistoia’s future .
Be honest & respect people who voted you & even those who didn’t and never stop listening to the men’s street chats : stay close to people with open eyes & you will find the right direction.
Be the mayor of all of us – as you proclaimed during your spechees – be the change you want to see in the world – as Mahatma Gandhi said – be the change everybody is looking for our beloved city & Pistoia’s people will support you for more than five years.
